Doris Lusk is a well known painter, but here is a sculpted piece of a bathing beauty from 1933 when she was at King Edward technical College to study art under J.D Charlton Edgar and R.N Field.
From the ever surprising collection of Manos. :manos:

Photo and info courtesy of Manos.

This vase has been made in the 1940s by Doris lusk, who changed her name to Doris Holland when she married. I am also sending you a photo of her potting and teaching pottery in Dunedin.
She was more of a very important historical NZ painter than a potter. she didnt do much pottery at all, her pieces are so rare its almost impossible to find any. I consider myself very lucky having two pieces of hers in my collection.

Christchurch Art Gallery have digitised the Canterbury Society of Arts catalogues and newsletters

http://christchurchartgallery.org.nz/multimedia/print/canterbury-society-of-arts-annual-catalogues/

There are many references to Doris Lusk/Holland as an exhibitor and as a Society member or office holder. As a painting teacher/lecturer she influenced many of the major contemporray artists.
